SingleHop, a dedicated server and managed web hosting provider, today announced the first product launch under their Cascade cloud hosting services program: the CloudLinux operating system. The company states that launched in February 2010, the CloudLinux operating system is designed to increase server density by improving stability and reliability using isolation technology to create Lightweight Virtual Environments (LVEs).
It further states that the use of LVEs improves server density and performance. CloudLinux is easily interchangeable with Centos or Red Hat Enterprise Linux; Cloud Linux founder Igor Seletskiy says that the switch can be made "within five minutes." The company adds that CloudLinux will be available for free with any server above $179.00 per month.
"CloudLinux is a new market offering, but one that will offer exceptional performance and extended control abilities in a cloud-like system," says SingleHop VP of Sales and Marketing Dan Ushman. "For our clients, it ensures greater stability and efficiency, optimized performance, and better security of their servers. We're excited to offer CloudLinux as the first of our Cascade cloud system offerings."
